Can anyone point me in the direction of some easy recipes from the English Civil War / Stuart period? I've tried to "google" the topic with little success.

I know their are some members who have mentioned Medieval/Roman/Rationing food in the past.

Cheers

Best suggestion I can come up with is to contact the Sealed Knot (or a similar ECW reenactment group). I think Dan Moorhouse has contacts with such a group.

I'll see if they've got a ready to print list. In the meantime, is this of any use? National Trust. A Book of Historical Recipes. ISBN 0-7078-0240-7. They tend to err otwards the lords table rather than everyday commoners grub but several are more usable. It's also worth having a look in the Horrible histories books as some of them have recipes in them. Don't have the Slimy Stuarts to hand to check, but the Romans book certainly has a few recpes ideas in it.

Cheers - already found the HH recipes for gingerbread... I really just need one other "snack" like item. Its for an open evening and I doubt I would have time to order a book.

Why is this in the Cafe section? Shurely it should be in teaching resources? (said in my best Sean Connery accent...) ;)

I dunno. Lazy, incompetent, unobservant Administrators I guess. :whistle:
